Volunteer Congo Kinshasa
Republic of Congo, often referred to as Congo Kinshasa after its capital, has effectively been a war zone since its
independence from Belgium in 1960 and in the decades that
preceded its independence, this vast and resource rich nation was pillaged by the
King of Belgium for his own personal gain.
Kinshasa is ranked in joint bottom place together with
Niger of 186 countries and territories in 2013 by the HDI (Human Development Index) measured by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) and the World Bank which is based upon the life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and living standards of a country.
